If you have been using Albert's teacher tools, you have probably seen our Mastery Levels all over the place. For example:
Mastery Levels are Albert's grouping of student performance. You can think of them as a form of grades, but with a focus on actionability instead of exactness. In other words, instead of worrying about if a student is performing at a B+ or A- level, we just want to tell you that the student is "Excelling", but still not at "Mastery".
Mastery Levels are useful for quickly visualizing student performance instead of having to scan individual accuracy percentages. It saves time when analyzing results and provides a common language around student performance.
In order, the possible levels and their Raw Accuracy cutoffs are:
- Mastery - 90%+
- Excelling - 80-90%
- Proficient - 70-80%
- Passing - 55-70%
- Struggling - 0-55%
These are set by default in Albert and there is currently no way to customize them.
Defining custom Mastery Levels
[COMING SOON]: We are working on a feature to allow teachers to set their own Mastery Level cutoffs within their classrooms. If you'd like to be notified about when this feature becomes available, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
